In 1977, Jim and Jeanna Rard started a new boat yard, Marine Servicenter, in a little shop in Seattle. Over the years, the business expanded to include new and used yacht sales, yacht dry storage, and a marine store.
In 2020, after 43 years in the boatyard business, Jim and Jeanna sold the boatyard portion of Marine Servicenter, in order to concentrate on new and used yacht sales. The boatyard in Anacortes is fully functioning under the direction of Seattle Yachts, who retained all the employees that have been working there for many years.
Our Anacortes sales office remains at 700 28th St. We can help you dry store your boat for sale, or find moorage for you as you list with us. The Seattle dealership is located on the west side of Lake Union at 2442 Westlake Avenue N., in a fantastic new building with its own moorage basin out the back door. Ironically, this is the exact location where Jim and Jeanna started the company nearly 40 years ago!
Marine Servicenter is known for their after-sales service, and will continue to care for our clients. Our four full-time Certified Professional yacht brokers are boaters! We cruise, sail, fish, liveaboard and race. Combined, we have well over a century of boating experience.
We would love to help you fulfill your boating dreams. We can locate your perfect boat anywhere in the world, or next door. We will be with you step by step! Give us a call, either in Anacortes or Seattle.
